To make this happen you would need to replace the following:

CPU
Motherboard
RAM
Graphics card
PSU

Amazingly all you need to add is a case and a HDD and you just bought a whole new computer.

What do you need the i7 for? You most likely don't, so you could just build a budget AM3 build if you want to upgrade.

No, the i7 is not compatible with your AMD based system. As the_punkinator states, you would have to essentially build an entire new system to go from the Athlon 64 to an i7.
